Failed to create file system for error

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I can't manage to make Google Drive work

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Ubuntu 18.04

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive (Teamdrive)

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

 rclone copy source:/home/seedbox/rtorrent/download/episode.mp4 dest:Series

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

[Google Drive]
type = drive
client_id =...
client_secret = ...
scope = drive
token = ...
team_drive = ...

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Thanks a lot in advance

You need to change your source: to the remote name in your rclone,conf, which is "Google Drive:"

rclone copy /home/seedbox/rtorrent/download/episode.mp4 'Google Drive':Series

I tend to avoid naming remotes with spaces and it just makes things tougher.

Thank you so much! I'll change the remote name in order to avoid spaces.

Have a great day!
